July 15, 2015 - Yohance Marshall scores equalizer in draw with Mexico
"In an encounter contested more like a final rather than one between sides having already earned quarterfinal berths, Trinidad & Tobago (2-1-0, 7 points) and Mexico (1-2-0, 5 points) battled to a 4-4 draw in the last game of the CONCACAF Gold Cup’s group stage on Wednesday at Bank of America Stadium. The result clinched the top spot in Group C for the Trinidadians, while Mexico was forced to settle for second place.... Mexico thought first place was theirs one minute into stoppage time, when Miguel Layun – positioned on the left -- collected a ball punched in his direction by Phillip. The former Club America star dribbled into the box and sent what appeared to be a half shot-half pass in front of the net, where it deflected off Jones and into the goal. Prior to anyone having time to catch their collective breaths, Trinidad was back on level terms. Joevin Jones’ in-swinging, left-side corner kick connected with Marshall, who headed home for the game’s final goal, completing the remarkable scoreline at 4-4." - CONCACAF

July 12, 2015 - Sheldon Bateau & Andre Boucaud score in win over Cuba
"Trinidad & Tobago (2-0-0, 6 points) sealed a spot in the knockout stage of the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup with a 2-0 win over Cuba (0-0-2, 0 points) on Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium.... Sheldon Bateau and Andre Boucaud each scored in the first half for the Soca Warriors, who won consecutive games in the Gold Cup for the first time in 15 years. Trinidad took a 1-0 lead in the 17th minute, when Bateau hammered home from near the penalty spot. Cuba goalkeeper Diosvelis Guerra blocked Lester Peltier’s attempted 10-yard chip, but the ball fell to a charging Bateau for his second goal of the competition. Boucaud doubled the advantage in the 43rd minute. The 30-year-old fired inside the right post with his right foot from 17-yards out after long throw-in into the box from the right side was headed in his direction by Cuba captain Yenier Marquez." - CONCACAF

July 9, 2015 - Sheldon Bateau, Cordell Cato & Joevin Jones score in win over Guatemala
"Trinidad & Tobago surprised Guatemala with three goals in the first 25 minutes for a 3-1 victory in the Group C opener of the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup on Thursday night.
Sheldon Bateau, Cordell Cato and Joevin Jones scored for the Caribbean runner-up in what was the 250th overall game in the tournament’s history. Striker Carlos Ruiz netted for Guatemala in the second half at Soldier Field. Trinidad took a 1-0 lead in the 11th minute, when Bateau poked a Khaleem Hyland corner kick of the right post and into the net. Bateau beat his defender to the ball as he charged into the six-yard box, getting enough of it to beat goalkeeper Ricardo Jerez. It didn’t take long for the Soca Warriors to strike again. After an error between Jerez and a defender, Cato stole the ball and sprinted to his right. The San Jose Earthquakes midfielder then drilled a shot into an open net for a 2-0 lead in the 14th minute. Joevin Jones added his first international goal for Trinidad in the 25th minute, initiating a give-and-go with Kenwyne Jones, who returned the ball. In return, the Chicago Fire midfielder fed Cato, who fired an attempt that Jerez deflected. Jones was there to bury the rebound with a right-footed blast.... Ruiz’ goal in the 62nd minute, cutting lead to 3-1. The Municipal striker brought down a pass into the area with his chest and rocketed home a right-footer beyond goalkeeper Jan-Michael Williams for his eight career Gold Cup goal." - CONCACAF

November 13, 2014 - Kevin Molina scores brace in win over French Guiana
"Trinidad and Tobago made it two wins in as many matches in the 2014 Caribbean Cup when they defeated French Guiana 4-2 in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Kevin Molina opened the scoring in the 17th minute of play when he out-muscled a defender to beat the goalkeeper to his right from an acute angle. T&T would go in at the halftime interval hanging on to the one-goal advantage. Molina, who scored the winning item in T&T's 3-2 victory over Curacao on Tuesday, continued his prolific season coming out of the MLS when he again found the back of the net with relative ease in the 58th minute to make it 2-0. And Lester Peltier increased T&T's advantage four minutes later when he converted a 58th minute penalty. French Guiana gave themselves a ray of hope when Brian St Clair beat Marvin Phillip in the 68th minute and Jean David Legrand notched their second item in the 84th to reduce T&T's lead to a solitary goal at 3-2. However, Atullah Guerra ensured there would be no dramatic comeback by the opposition when he scored in the second minute of time added on to seal all three points for the Soca Warriors." - Trinidad Express

November 11, 2014 - Kenwyne Jones & Kevin Molino score in win over Curacao
Kevin Molino broke a second-half deadlock to lift Trinidad & Tobago past Curacao 3-2 in the first game of the 2014 Caribbean Cup finals on Tuesday at the Montego Bay Sports Complex. The victory places the Soca Warriors -- buoyed by Kenwyne Jones' two-goal performance – into first place in Group A, at least temporarily.... From a right-sided corner kick, Jones was pulled down in the box by Shelton Martis and referee Trevor Taylor did not hesitate to point to the spot.  The Cardiff City forward took the kick himself, drilling it home for his first goal of the finals and fourth of this year’s competition. Seven minutes before the break, Jones was in the right place at the right time to put Trinidad up 2-1.  The outstanding Molino, who captured Player of the Game honors, sent a cross on the ground from the left side of the box that goalkeeper Jarzinho Pieter could not corral. Jones was there to tap it in from close range.... A moment of brilliance in the 52nd minute by Molino – positioned beyond the left side of the box --proved to be the difference as the Orlando City standout fired an effort inside the far post." - CONCACAF

October 6, 2014 - roster named for Caribbean Cup
"Cardiff City striker Kenwyne Jones leads a plethora of foreign-based stars named in a strong 20-man Trinidad & Tobago squad to contest Caribbean Cup, second round matches starting Wednesday. The host Soca Warriors will do battle in Group 7, alongside Antigua & Barbuda, St. Lucia and the Dominican Republic, from October 8-12 at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva. Jones, who has played for Stoke City and Sunderland, will wear the captain’s armband in a side that also features Slovan Bratislava winger Lester Peltier. A trio of performers from Major League Soccer -- forward Cordell Cato (San Jose Earthquakes), defender Carlyle Mitchell (Vancouver Whitecaps) and midfielder Kevan George (Columbus Crew) – also got nods. They will be joined by the Belgium-based pair of Khaleem Hyland (Racing Genk) and Sheldon Bateau (KV Mechelen), the Vietnam-based duo of Hughtun Hector and Daneil Cyrus, as well as Justin Hoyte and Andre Boucaud, who ply their trades in England for Millwall and Dagenham and Redbridge, respectively." - CONCACAF
